US-led Coalition Conducts Largest Attack on ISIL Held Syrian City

The recent airstrikes conducted by US-led coalition have severely constricted the Islamic State militant's freedom of movement.

US-led coalition forces said they accomplished a series of 16 airstrikes on Saturday on Islamic State militants in the Syrian city of Raqa.

Coalition forces "successfully engaged multiple targets" throughout Raqa — the extremists' de facto capital —destroying IS structures and transit routes.

The strikes "have severely constricted the terrorists’ freedom of movement," spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Gilleran said in a coalition statement, media reported.

This was one of the largest deliberate engagements conducted by the US-led coalition in Syria to date.
